From Autonomy to Relationships: Productive Engagement with Uncertainty
Clegg, J.; Lansdall-Welfare, R.
Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, v54 ns1 p66-72 Mar 2010
This paper argues that we are at a point of change in ID services, that new ideas and different frames of reference are required to take services forward in the 21st century. We describe how contemporary thinking in architecture, philosophy and organisational theory can assist in generating service principles for specialist services that allow us to better address the continuing isolation that is the experience of many people with ID, and the moral judgements that can limit service possibilities. We do not seek to offer a rigid blueprint for any particular service but one that allows for agency from its participants and relationships between them.
